Why should developers learn about IaaS?

  • First time ever we have the ability to treat infrastructure as a programmable resource ( think of your infrastructure as  an Object Model)
  • Ability to build cost effective systems  ( by only turning on the parts of system that are needed and when they are needed)
  • Ability to build systems that scale in the direction of business growth ( i.e. add more cache servers, add number of IIS instance, add database shards as needed - )
  • Ability to take advantage of local, as well as, geo redundant infrastructure to make our application fault tolerant like never before.

A working understanding of IaaS is needed to take advantage of aforementioned benefits!
